What Do You Think Of This Idea?
I've decided to try something different with the sport weight alpaca yarn. Instead of making a hat and a scarf I am going to try a very long hat that you can wrap the top around your neck so that it's basically a hat and scarf together in a single piece.

I have no idea how such a thing will wind up looking but I figure it'll definitely be different.

YOu used to see these back in the late 50's early 60's - and in some Currier and Ives pictures.....Usually about long enough to reach almost the waist - some were longer.

I'm thinking of doing one - but with a sock foot instead of a tassel on the end.

I have a hood thing with long ends that acts as a hood and a scarf all at once -- that's not what you're talking about though, right?

I love that thing; what a great idea to make a new one for myself!

Good luck with yours and thanks for the idea for me.

I've seen those, but never one like I am thinking but obviously they've been done before.

In cold weather, one of these would be ideal. Keep the head and neck warm without places for cold air to seep in.

You can just do one of your awesome hats to go with it...:D And I'll model it for you!
